_Blown in from the Northern Nevada desert, like a tumbling sage, with a rakish smile and shock of blonde hair, sun-kissed and freckled cheeks, Athena McIntyre can simultaneously warm your skin and chill your bones. This ‘gurl with a guitar’ will sneak up and hit you like a Washoe Zephyr. Her music and lyrics are as much a part of the Nevada landscape as they are a reflection her own inner landscape.
